Two of the most interesting questions I get as a lawyer are, “Do you take cash?,” and, “Is this phone consultation free? No I don’t take cash, because I’d rather you write me a bad check. And no, this phone consultation is not free. I will bill you, and expect you to pay me in cash. If I wanted to be able to bill you over the phone I would have a 1-900 number. Yes, you could give me your credit card info over the phone, and then as soon as we hung up dispute it with your credit card company.
